Cottonboll has been home all week and we have been keeping ourselves busy. We went shopping. Lots lots of fun with a 4 year old and the holiday crowd. I promised her Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets at the mall and cookie by the bubbles (water fountain) if she was good and stayed with me, with out whining or being fussy. To my good fortune or bad fortune, the balloon lady was making balloon animals right by Chick-fil-A. Yes, a another promise if you are good, on our way out we will get a balloon. Delightful cheers and promises from Cottonboll I will be good! And she was good for the most part so we did have Chick-fil-A nuggets in the mall, MM cookie by the small bubbles (fountain) because toy for tots was at the big fountain and yes we did get a flower balloon on the way out.
Oh yes, I all most forgot this little story. To go shopping, I wore black boots with heels that clip clop when I walk. As Cottonboll and I were leaving out the door to shop, she came out of her room with a big smile on her face and her black Sunday shoes on her feet. NO, what are you doing? Were are your brown boots? I asked. Her reply"I want to were heels that clip clop like yours do pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Fine I said lets go. So off went to the mall with jeans, a red shirt and black Sunday shoes.
